Alpine SUP: Taking SUP to a New Altitude
blog 26 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
Have you ever been to a high alpine lake, like 10,000 ft. and higher? I’m sure you know about the trek that often comes with it. This past spring I took on a personal goal and mission— to hike to and SUP on seven alpine lakes throughout Colorado.

How do we build Scout Spirit in ourselves? Think of it in terms of first aid training.
Exercise Rational Control
While we can’t control what happens around us, we can control how we react.
If someone’s clothing catches on fire their first reaction is running away from the flames, an objectively irrational, but predictable response. To counter that irrational response we teach people...
Water Bottle Holder Projects
Blog 26 Aug 2014 | 8:13 am
We are in the middle of a heatwave here in the Midwest, and keeping hydrated is critical in the extreme temperatures. So I though this would be a good time to suggest some water bottle holder projects I came across recently. Scouts will want to keep their water bottles with them when they can carry them in a water bottle holder they made themselves.
